Guided Practice: Learning to Write about Nonfiction Topics You Already Know Well, Grades 3 and Up
Guided Practice: Learning to Write about Nonfiction Topics You Already Know Well, Grades 3 and Up

In this sequence of videos, staff developers from Columbia University’s Teachers College Reading and Writing Project coach individual writers to generate ideas for a nonfiction book, and to work through the process of writing that book. Writing well requires a knowledge of the topic, so students are guided to write about topics of personal expertise (i.e. basketball). However, if they have studied a topic deeply (i.e. The American Revolution) this coaching can help them write well about those topics, too.

Guided Practice: Using Writing to Strengthen Your Reading & Writing Literary Essays, Grades 3 and Up

In an introductory series of 9 video-lessons, students learn a host of engaging and thoughtful ways to jot responses to their fiction reading. Then, in a second series with 10 videos, students take all the writing and thinking about reading they did in the first, and fashion that writing into a well-structured literary essay. As they do this important work, students deepen their understanding of writing literary essays about texts, and all that this process entails.
